As an avid comic book collector since the age of ten, which at this point was *sigh* twenty-three years ago, I’ve amassed a decent size collection over time. However, in the fortress of longboxes stored in my closet, there is one title that never made its way into the fold. That title? Thor.
On Free Comic Book Day this year I picked up The Red Ten #0 on a whim. What I found, along with a great mystery, was a entry point to a whole new world of comic books.
It wasn’t that long ago that someone first mentioned to me the comic title Invincible. If I recall correctly, It was maybe 2 to 3 years ago.

I don’t think I have ever been hooked like I am with Invincible.
